West Brom signing Zhang Yuning has urged fans in China not to get carried away with his form.
Zhang has scored twice in pre-season for the green and whites, including one against West Ham in the Betway Cup.
“I have to admit that that was quite big news [the reaction]," he told the club's official website.
“There aren't many Chinese players playing in Europe, especially not in the five big leagues.
“I've quickly been put under great pressure by the media, friends, but also by people who I don't know at all.
“Everyone suddenly thinks I'm the new hope of Chinese football, even though I don't think that myself."
